PVRIS Performs In Minneapolis With Openers Sizzy Rocket & Pale Waves

PVRIS brought a full crowd to Uptown Theater in Minneapolis on June 14. Their United States headlining tour delivered powerful female energy with support from Sizzy Rocket and Pale Waves.

Sizzy Rocket opened the night. The Los Angeles singer-songwriter, born Sabrina Louise Bernstein, had complete command of the stage where she performed alone. She unapologetically flirted with the audience throughout her set, making playful moans and whipping her hair around. The crowd loved her back, cheering with every butt slap and hanging on to her every word. While she mostly displayed an infectious confidence, she also made sure to let the audience see her vulnerable side with new single “I’m Just a Grrrl.”

Pale Waves, the indie-pop four-piece from Manchester, UK took the stage next. Lead vocalist Heather Baron-Gracie exuded cool girl energy as she sang and swayed throughout their set, dedicating “She Is My Religion” to the lesbians in the crowd. They performed hits from their 2018 debut such as “Television Romance” and “Eighteen,” as well as their newest single “Perfume.” Their upcoming album Smitten will be released on September 20.

PVRIS (pronounced “Paris”) has gone through several lineup changes since its formation in 2009, with frontwoman Lynn Gunn being the only current original member. By the time they took the stage, the energy in the room was buzzing with excitement. The band’s electronic alternative rock sound shook the room as they played hits from their various albums. Fans were delighted to hear early favorites like “White Noise” and “Same Soul,” as well as the newest release “Burn the Witch,” the band’s first song produced entirely by Gunn.

Gunn was quite vocal throughout the set, with constant check-ins with the crowd and even encouraging audience members to introduce themselves to the people around them. She also declared her love for the city several times, explaining that she knows she can count on Minneapolis to always come through with their support of her band.

PVRIS will continue their United States tour until mid-July. They’ll begin again in mid-August to support Smashing Pumpkins until September 27.
